Luxembourg successfully completed the eCall conformity assessment, becoming the first EU Member State to declare itself ready to implement eCall.

This assessment was carried out under the umbrella of the EU funded  I_HeERO Project, which aims to conclude the upgrades needed for EU Member States to comply with the legal requirement of preparing for eCall’s launch on 1 October 2017.

Luxembourg, an I_HeERO project partner, completed the assessment under the supervision of NavCert GbmH, leader of the conformity assessment activities in the EU-funded I_HeERO project. I_HeERO Technical Implementation Officer Andy Rooke, from ERTICO – ITS Europe, confirms this important technical milestone: “Luxembourg’s successful compliance assessment is excellent news and will prompt the remaining Member States to go forward with their conformity assessments.”

eCall technology will be mandatory for all types of passenger cars and light commercial vehicles sold in the EU after April 2018. This EU initiative will allow emergency services to respond quicker, saving hundreds of lives each year. The I_HeERO project seeks to ensure that the EU Member States Public Safety Answering Points (PSAP) are ready to handle 112 eCalls. By extending the reach of eCall to include other scenarios, such as hazardous goods vehicles, it is now looking at integrating the next generation of 112 eCall technologies.
